Three more drawings of the kids

three more drawings for mothers day presents...only hmmm ten to go??? better get with it:> these look enough like the two boys that the other kids knew who they were...yeah...

WHAT ELSE??? I first scanned all the pictures then when I was having trouble with alot of the pencil showing up I decided to take pics of them too...the pictures turned out much better...but only the first one had a white background although they were all taken with the same setting...the only difference was the kitchen floor showed in the first photo but not in the otheres...I cropped the floor out of this one...

Another thing ...you can see the pencil strokes much better with the photos than with the scans....which was why i took a picture of them. Sometimes the scanner does a terrific job with pencil sketches and sometimes it doesnt...the camera MIGHT change the color but you CAN see all the details....strange....

THE SCAN
funny thing...the cheek on the first boy was wrong...and the picture did not look like him...as soon as I redrew it like one of the other little boys(because he would not hold still enough for me to get his cheek right) it turned into a picture of him...i was soo fascinated by that that i kept telling the other two teachers in the room about it ...just one little change in his cheek brought out the boy we all knew!! He is a very funny little boy who just loves Scooby Doo and will do any work as long as Scooby is involved...PHOTO ON DOCUMENT SETTING
THE SCAN
This little boy has so many characteristics like his great eyes and fabulous eyebrows that hes really fairly easy to draw...of course he is such a friendly child we all love him to death! The girls are going to love him!!



this is the picture this little boy drew of me while I was drawing him...actually I think hes pretty talented for a five year old...he got the ears in the right place and the eyes,...and even gave me a neck...he didnt quite get to finish BUT he was off to a great start!!!
This is of one of our sweet girls...its only half done....but shes looking alot like herself so far...

These are great. I really like the shading and cross-hatching on the last one and the 3/4 view is nicely done and interesting on the first one. You're right the middle boy is a real doll!
